The Descente London Duathlon is a run-bike-run event offering athletes of all abilities the chance to race through the stunning surroundings of Richmond Park It is the largest duathlon event in the world. Launched in 2005, it has the privilege of being the only event to close roads to traffic within Richmond Park, the largest of London’s Royal Parks, offering a singular opportunity to enjoy the spectacular venue while engaging in this fast-growing sporting discipline.
“Richmond Park is an incredibly sensitive area to operate in. As such Limelight Sports have worked very hard to secure the venue and form a great working relationship with the park’s management.
Events Solutions work around the entire park and as such are exposed to its protected wildlife and Grade I & II listed structures. They are trusted to work professionally, safely and autonomously. As they deliver one of the larger and more visible operations during the build and derig, James and his team make a large contribution to the events success and our continued relationship with the park’s management.”James Channing Limelight Sports Ltd Production and Logistics Manager
